NFL’s Chargers Are Staying In San Diego, For Now
As if there was any real doubt, but the San Diego Chargers are staying in San Diego! The football team announced last night that they have no intention of going to Los Angeles, at least for the 2015 season. But, between you and me, if San Diego wants to keep the Chargers as part of the Southern California Lifestyle, they should start thinking of ways to get a new stadium.
Statement of Mark Fabiani
Special Counsel to the President of the San Diego Chargers
December 16, 2014
On February 1st of every year since 2007, the Chargers have been eligible to terminate the team’s lease for Qualcomm Stadium. And each year since 2007, the Chargers have announced that the team will not exercise the termination clause and instead continue to work toward a permanent stadium solution in San Diego.
Today, the Chargers are making the same announcement that the team has made each year since 2007: The team will not be exercising the lease termination clause and will keep working to find a publicly acceptable way to build a Super-Bowl quality stadium in San Diego. Calendar year 2015 will constitute the team’s fourteenth year of work on a San Diego stadium solution.
14 YEARS of looking for a solution. That is crazy. I must admit that Jack Murphy Stadium, now Qualcomm, holds a special place in my memory, and it is not a terrible stadium, but come on now, 14 years is way too long to sit around wand wait for change. Get it together San Diego!
The Chargers have been in San Diego for almost all of their existence, and with so many season ticket holders here in Southern California it is nice to see that the Chargers want to stay, at least for now.
